Understanding Threats – The on-going online attack

You don’t need to be a cybersecurity expert to ensure that your business is protected, but it is critical that you understand the online threats to your company’s network. Awareness of key threats will enable you to employ practices and behaviors that limit your company’s risk.
Today’s businesses face several major online threats:


Spam

Spam, unsolicited junk email, can be both received and distributed by businesses.

To avoid ramifications from the FTC, all corporate emails to customers must abide by the following guidelines as stated in the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003:

If you or your employees receive spam, forward it to spam@uce.gov. The FTC uses this database to pursue legal actions against spammers.


Phishing
Phishing attacks usually use fraudulent emails to trick consumers into sharing their personal data, such as Social Security numbers, or financial information (credit card account numbers, user names and passwords, etc.).

Partner, Law Firm

We hired IT360 as our computer hardware and software computer consultants when the company first went into business. Since then, they have helped us purchase new software and hardware equipment that we have instituted into the law firm. Any time we needed them to be there they have been. They have solved all of our problems including: stand alone computers, networking issues, Internet access issues, and software. I would highly recommend IT360 to anybody who needs help in these areas.
